We are proud to announce that we have partnered with Kangu.org, the world’s first crowdfunding platform for safe births for pregnant women and newborns worldwide. The WHO estimates that every day 1,000 women die in childbirth. And for every woman that dies, another 20 experience life altering harm.
Kangu lets anyone with $10 to give become part of the solution.
At www.kangu.org, users can search profiles of pregnant women (initially in India, Nepal, and Uganda) and fund a specific woman’s access to high-quality healthcare before, during and after childbirth. These services are proven to reduce maternal mortality by up to 80%. Kangu transfers donations to vetted on-the-ground hospitals who provide patient-centered healthcare services and then share updates on the funded woman and the outcome of her birth.
Kangu’s innovative fundraising platform unlocks a new source of capital for hospitals and non-profit organizations, expands access to life-saving services for pregnant women in need, and creates an easy and meaningful way for individuals to have an impact on an issue close to their hearts.
“Kangu is thrilled to partner with Social Good Moms to reach millions of moms who are creating connections and community online,” said Casey Santiago, Founder and CEO of Kangu. “Social media, given power by the voices of mom bloggers, makes it possible to truly live in a global village. Kangu makes it possible for anyone to become a positive force in a woman’s birth story. At Kangu.org, you can see photos and stories of specific pregnant women in Asia and Africa. And with as little as $10, you can contribute to funding her access to high quality, compassionate health care. We built Kangu with the belief that the world’s moms, and those that care for them, would come together to end preventable maternal mortality. Partnering with Social Good Moms enables Kangu to broaden our community of moms helping moms, and to further spread our message of making the world a smaller, safer, more just place.”
We are equally thrilled to partner with Kangu and its innovative approach to maternal health. As mothers we believe in helping other mothers no matter where they live. Social Good Moms and Kangu working together will provide a powerful way for everyday moms to assist in safe births for other everyday moms. I can only see amazing, meaningful impact happening through this partnership.
